Welcome to Scrap Tower, my little corner of the world, where I share my creativity with you.

I enjoy many forms of crafting, from paper crafting to sewing. I make custom greeting cards for family and friends. I've made unique custom cards commissioned by friends.

I am proud to have been a card maker for the organization Operation Write Home (OWH) for several years supplying 1,000+ handmade cards for our HEROES.

I continue to make cards as gifts or to sell and I am testing a few other sewing and crochet projects to sell.

My current charitable project is Sew Powerful Purse and I have sewn and donated 20+ purses in the past two years. I plan to donate 10+ purses in 2018.

I enjoy sharing my creative passion with others, including children in Sunday School and Bible School, etc.

HELLO HANDSOME: OWH Sketch Challenge #112

OWH Sketch #112 came at the perfect time for me.  I started this masculline card last night, but hit a mental block about how to put it together. I already had the background cut and the strip cut to 1.5" width.  When I saw today's sketch, the creativity kicked in, I trimmed the strip to 5" length and I had my finished card in no time.
Hello Handsome
The paper is from Recollections Regent Street paper pad which I just bought yesterday.  The tag embellishment is also from the paper pad. It had a button printed on it, but I added a real button and some twine to give it more dimension.

The sentiment is from HERO ARTS OWH Year Round Sentiment Set. This card could be used for any occasion.


  1. Great card...love the ruler, and the colors! TFS!!!

  2. I really like this card. It goes together so beautifully and has so many points of interest. It is difficult for me to make masculine cards--you make it look so easy :)

  3. This is great! Love the sentiment and you put all of the elements together beautifully!

  4. Very nice card, Susan. Love those papers.

  5. How masculine and attractive! I love your tag and that background plaid paper. Awesome card!

  6. the plaid paper was exactly the perfect touch!

  7. Great card, Susan! Love the button and twine detail on the tag. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  8. Wonderful masculine card! I keep putting off using that particular sentiment, but now you've given me some inspiration to use it. Thanks.
